Status message

There are 4 Updates appearing in the Federal Register for 48 CFR 4. View below or at eCFR (GPOAccess)
4.605 Procedures.
(a) Procurement Instrument Identifier (PIID). Agencies shall have in place a process that ensures that each PIID reported to FPDS is unique Governmentwide, for all solicitations, contracts, blanket purchase agreements, basic agreements, basic ordering agreements, or orders in accordance with 4.1601, and will remain so for at least 20 years from the date of contract award. Other pertinent PIID instructions for FPDS reporting can be found at https://www.fpds.gov.
(b) Data Universal Numbering System. The contracting officer must identify and report a Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number (Contractor Identification Number) for the successful offeror on a contract action. The DUNS number reported must identify the successful offeror's name and address as stated in the offer and resultant contract, and as registered in the System for Award Management database in accordance with the provision at 52.204-7, System for Award Management. The contracting officer must ask the offeror to provide its DUNS number by using either the provision at 52.204-6, Data Universal Numbering System Number, the provision at 52.204-7, System for Award Management, or the provision at 52.212-1, Instructions to Offerors—Commercial Items.
(c) Generic DUNS number. (1) The use of a generic DUNS number should be limited, and only used in the situations described in paragraph (c)(2) of this section. Use of a generic DUNS number does not supersede the requirements of either provisions 52.204-6 or 52.204-7 (if present in the solicitation) for the contractor to have a DUNS number assigned.
(2) Authorized generic DUNS numbers, maintained by the Integrated Acquisition Environment (IAE) program office ( https://www.acquisition.gov ), may be used to report contracts in lieu of the contractor's actual DUNS number only for—
(i) Contract actions valued at or below $25,000 that are awarded to a contractor that is—
(A) A student;
(B) A dependent of either a veteran, foreign service officer, or military member assigned outside the United States and its outlying areas (as defined in 2.101); or
(C) Located outside the United States and its outlying areas for work to be performed outside the United States and its outlying areas and the contractor does not otherwise have a DUNS number;
(ii) Contracts valued above $25,000 awarded to individuals located outside the United States and its outlying areas for work to be performed outside the United States and its outlying areas; or
(iii) Contracts when specific public identification of the contracted party could endanger the mission, contractor, or recipients of the acquired goods or services. The contracting officer must include a written determination in the contract file of a decision applicable to authority under this paragraph (c)(2)(iii).
(d) American Recovery and Reinvestment Act actions. The contracting officer, when entering data in FPDS, shall use the instructions at https://www.fpds.gov to identify any action funded in whole or in part by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Pub. L. 111-5).
